The future of the NBA lies in Texas. Not in Dallas, Houston or San Antonio, home to the state's three NBA teams, who have won a combined 64.4 percent of their games over the past decade, but farther south in Hidalgo, Texas, located a long 3-pointer across the Rio Grande from Mexico. There, in the NBA's D-League, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers are playing the most extreme professional basketball in America.
Kevin Pelton examines the Rio Grande Valley Vipers' love for the 3-pointer, and asks if the blueprint is a sign of things to come in the NBA.
